When I…

When I compare my raw, behind-the-scenes life to others’ social media highlight reel, I have to force myself to take a step back, breathe, and remember life is messy and beautiful…for everyone.

When I’m tempted to feel down for not having achieved “enough” thus far, I remind myself of the victories I have had (and there is still so much ahead!).

When I look around and self-criticize for not being like others in whatever aspect I’m feeling insecure about that day, I look up and remember He made me exactly as He wanted me to be in His perfect plan and He is continually perfecting me.

When I people-please and then feel empty when I perceive they haven’t accepted me, I rest in knowing God’s acceptance is all that matters because human opinion will always be petty and changing.

When I haven’t posted a blog for months and feel like I’ll never be inspired to write ever again, I give myself grace and crank something out that was laid on my heart over the past few days!

stay lovely,
the tall girl
